republican primary more than 2 million votes. >> deal is one to do better but i was very encouraged that is where i have become more optimistic i did watch the same "state of the union" message it is rather depressing but i will continue to go to college campuses. so many young people understand it is so different from when i got in that 1970 now people do care by individua liberty and limited government. >> i don't blame you you
9:05pm
show up 10 hours early at the end of the ideal to get your face on tv? it is a set up fast. >> it is terrible. it is like a joyous occasion rushing in to get seats and they wiloccupy a seat early hours and hours before but jumping up and down sure they get up or sit on their hands? plague the world has been saved it would be so distorted but they live in their own bubble in don't know that there's anybody like you that might have questions about what is going on and we did not gee answers tonight.
9:06pm
>> there is no requirement to hold a celebration the constitution says time to time give congress information on the "state of the union." jefferson wrote in his sphere george washington high said 800 words and obama was several thousand that depresses me. do they give you hope? >> six or 12 will do a good job which is more tn when i was there. >> you endorsed a few.
9:07pm
yes that is a good start. we do need a lot more but after listening to a speech like that i will not quit before we have a committee but that doesn't mean we should not change people's mind but to think we'll have more members of congress coming to our senses to vote against largess, bring troops home, repeal and restraint the president's right to so-called to do that? economic and a crisis where there will be a decision made from the young people what kind of a system we have. we have a constitution and if we would do that but
9:08pm
right now it is not gradual. it is a financial crisis that will be very, very serious. >> the answers in the constitution. it is so thin compared to the laws we must obey. you were in congress 35 years. anything get better? >> it got worse. spending went up, government got bigger, more printing of money, more wars, a more central economic planning, more power to the fed but in the '30's on the surface was in defense of liberty and the gold standard that reverses the case now everything looks like welfare and warfare forever but underneath there
9:09pm
is a smoldering desire hand to talk about gun-control the american people. >> to talk about gun control they never mentioned the word drone. >>. >> i think the drone missile it is one of the most dangerous things. the stock on civil liberties is the most serious threat but the killing of foreigners by drones and civilians get killed and
9:10pm
americans ge killed it is so over-the-top. >> they do say are keeping them safe do that there so they don' do what here. >> as they say but over there you get 10 more dedicated to the al qaa principles keep foreigners out of our land and those who come here to kill us and right now i saw a statistic we're putting troops into 35 countries in africa to compete with china. they are investing in natural resources. of they put more troops in africa but we have troops in

9:12pm
my question is what did you learn running for president? >> you should have enough people double checking the of votes to get a fair shake. liberty is alive and well and i just love the fact young people will respond to a libertarian message response, responsibility, so und money to have a different form policy not looking for wars to fight. i learned thecountry is a lot better off than it was. but it did turn out i met a significant number.
9:13pm
>> i have a question. we have four more years of obama and chrtine his record what will it take for obama supporters to protest like when the last repuican was in office? >> they will not -- they are not going to as long as the many functions. the world market is willing to do is take dollars and is still better than foreign currency. we get the printed money, run up debts obama promises extra spending with the military industrial complex it won't stop until the dollar quits working it
9:14pm
done any time but not in the next week or two. there is no serious attempt. the argument is increasing by 19 o 20% then they y those who want 19% are slashing the budget and are so far out of touch it takes the bankruptcy people to say enough is enough. >> when interest rates go up, they go up suddenly. thank you for your service. you were so alone for so many years. thank you for fighting the good fight. >> thank you. >> later i will give the "state of the union" that obama should have given.

[laughter] not in the real world. [laughter]
9:20pm
with the mayors -- aristocracy versus capitalism you can achieve success, not be bailed out then this economy creates jobs and allows people to move ahead as abraham lincoln said improve their lot in life. government hurts' opportunities come to keep people in their place and is not a how to create things. free the people. they will do its. [laughter] john: you may kitchen ventilation systems in the kitchen to suck up the bad air but government wants to make your business better so then they will help all of the of the if you focus on 79 pages of regulation, and
9:21pm
many manufacturers are very small, it is too abstract it is impossible to read. >> notice of proposed rulemaking subsection 13, a complete missing in action is unintelligible then they try to make your fans used less electricity. so we have a paradox but he wants to regulate us to death so with creativity with the small investments made over a long period of time and government dampens that for the economy. >> keep in mind if you don't succeed in a tr free market even if you meet the

9:25pm
it is a paradox. john: this was done by the job creators alliance who wants to speak out. your ceos in general have not wanted to participate. >> but the small business people are speaking out saying the federal government is hostile and inhibits job creation and dampens freedom with 79 pages of regulation. >> they are intimidated by political correctness. >> or they may be targeted by the irs if they speak out >> looked at standard and poor's. they did for a job but so did the competits they lower the rate of the government and the government targets them.

[applause] john: thank you. i am so happy. i wind but now i realize somebody has to be the grown-up. i know speaker gaynor said the don't have the spending problem but i remember that but we do. will catch our history. for most of the life government was relatively small federal, state, and local government spent less than five a dollars per person in today's dollars
9:55pm
that is all we spent government was less than 5% of our economy when america grew the most even limited government had plenty of money for the louisiana purchase, a civil war, a transcontinental railroad, it became the richest and most powerful country in the world then government grew. here is a role for one, a world war ii, notice size came back down again then it has gone straight up with did johnson said government can cure poverty. and we created welfare payments so government grew. but they need more
